On Saturday, March 25, the packed auditorium of Becton Regional High School in East Rutherford hosted “Rebirth,” a song and dance event dedicated to the heroes of Artsakh. Thunderous applauses resounded through the event, organized by the Hamazkayin Armenian Cultural and Educational Society of New Jersey in cooperation with the Agnuni, Armenuhi, and Shakeh chapters of the Armenian Relief Society, the local chapter of Homenetmen and the Arsen chapter of the Armenian Youth Federation. Participating artists included Nune Yesayan and Arabo Ispirian} from Armenia, American-Armenian musician Ara Dinkjian and his ensemble, as well as Hamazkayin’s Nairi dance group, which was joined by groups from New York, Washington, and Philadelphia.
In his closing remarks, Archbishop Anoushavan, Prelate, extolled this initiative brought about by the joint efforts of community organizations, which brought a fresh spirit of cooperation, optimism, and progress in the first days of spring. He also praised the children and young members of the dance group for their dedication, wishing that one day they will have the opportunity to perform in Armenia and Artsakh.
